rice. senator john mccain actually insulted her intelligence. >> is this a select committee clears her of wrong doing besides not being very bright because it was obvious that this was not a "flash mob"? there was no demonstration. there was none there. >> she's a graduate of stanford and also rode scholar. they claim she misled the public about the attack on the consulate in benghazi. rice was actually reporting the intelligence that she had been given. the republicans don't seem to care about the facts. they are worried that the president will appoint rice to be the next secretary of state. john mccain says rice isn't qualified. senator lindsey graham calls rice a political choice for ambassador and it's not a good resume to be secretary of state. 97 house republicans signed the letter to the president accusing rice of willfully or incompetently misleading the public. the republicans are using words like not qualified, not bright, and incompetent. some democrats feel these words are actually code. >> these are code words. we heard them during the campaign. during the recent campa

play that's being produced right now in washington, d.c.. senators grahm, mccain sitting there being -- not summoned, too strong a word, but urgently requested to meet with ambassador rice and to what end when we have the responses we've just shown you from three senators saying they have more questions now than going in? >> well, this meeting was obviously a disaster. if it was intended to bring them closer together, to facilitate her nomination for secretary of state, it was a real failure. when you have senators coming out unmistakenbly things are worse now than before the meeting, that's not a good sign. what obama does for the nomination, i don't kkow, but, clearly, what we have is an administration who can't get the story straight. i think as long as that's out there, this is going to be a very troubled period for susan rice and her perspective nomination. lou: the idea is that any president as a matter of tradition has the right to his choice to fill whatever office is at issue. in this case, the secretary of state. this kind of dissension and contradiction and contest between

two. mitt romney in 2012 versus john mccain in 2008. among liberals who are happy that mitt romney lost and among conservatives who are trying to say i told you so about the reasons mitt romney lost, there's been a fair amount of bipartisan anti-mitt romney glee over the idea that mr. romney received even fewer votes for president than john mccain did back in 2008. turns out that is not true. it may have looked like that on election night or on the day after the election. but millions of votes aren't counted right after the election. it takes days and even weeks after the election until you get all the vote in. the fact is that president obama did beat both of these candidates pretty easily. neither was a close election. but mr. romney was closer. and mr. romney did beat mr. mccain in terms of the number of ballots cast. which is either exciting or just population growth, depending on your perspective. but if somebody tells you that john mccain got more votes for mitt romney, that's not true. last one. same game round three. things people are saying about the election that aren't t
